Six Wakes - Mur Lafferty

I enjoyed this book a lot but I did have a few issues with it.First of all the pedant in me got really annoyed at the use of the incorrect pronoun on a couple of occasions. I went back and read the passages a few times as my mind does wander and I thought maybe the character had changed but no, 'he' was used for a female character in one place and vice versa. Aside from that there was a significant piece of the plot that I just couldn't understand. Not sure if aforementioned wandering mind had gone somewhere for another little jaunt. Anyway, there were some interesting ideas in the story and I like that in a book,I like something to mull over once I close the covers. For me though, the characters didn't quite ring true. If life was cheap because there was always another one when you died, and assuming you weren't tired of living, wouldn't you be panicked to wake up and find everyone murdered (including yourself) and no chance of another body to slip into? Knowing this was your last chance, would you really be working calmly alongside your own potential murderer? The end was not as tense as I would have liked it to be. There was a brief moment of excitement then not alot. I make it sound like I didn't enjoy it but that isn't true, I just think there should have been more atmospheric development, I wouldn't have minded a few extra pages. It would be interesting to find out what happens to the people on the ship when they get to their destination. Sequel, please!

Six Wakes - Mur Lafferty

i'm really enjoying this now. 6 clones, all with no memory of the last 25 years but all have a criminal past and a really angry AI in charge of a space ship full of 2500 sleeping people on a 4oo year long journey. What could possibly go wrong?

I'm enjoying the book so far. I need to read more books about cloning. The guys seem more freaked out at having their memories of the last 25 years erased than the fact that one of them is a murderer.

The Renegade Star Series Book 4...
Renegade Lost - JN Chaney

I was going to summarize the plot myself but every sentence I came up with made the story sound cheesy and did it absolutely no justice so I'm going to post the blurb and leave it at that.  : ) 

 

A lost ship. An unknown civilization.

The Renegade Star is stranded, its engines totally shot, surrounded by the unknown. Floating in the dead of space, they receive a strange transmission from a nearby planet, warning them to stay away or face the consequences.

When the message mentions how this world belongs to Earth, the lost cradle of humanity, Captain Jace Hughes knows he has no choice but to investigate.

With an endless snowstorm, bloodthirsty animals around every corner, and no sign of any colonies or people, the mission won't be an easy one.

Good thing they sent in the Renegade.

Experience a sprawling galactic tale in this fourth entry to The Renegade Star series. If you're a fan of Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, or Leviathan Wakes, you'll love this epic, space opera thriller.
 

 

 

This is a great series you just want pure entertainment. It's lots of fun, tons of action and the characters, especially Jace and Siggy, the ships A.I. will make you laugh. 

 

*If you like audio books the narration is really good. Publisher's Pack #1 contains books 1 & 2 and Publisher's Pack #2 contains books 3 & 4.

The Renegade Star Series Book 3...
Renegade Moon - JN Chaney

This book is a continuation of Jace and his crew's search for Earth and their neverending battle to stay two steps ahead of the enemy. Perfect series if you like a lot of action, space battles and laugh out loud humor. The audio narration (Publisher's Pack #2) is also really good.

 

I didn't get to hear from Siggy, my favorite AI as much in this book though. : (
